Domaine Manciat-Poncet, Pouilly-Fuisse, “Les Crays” 2000

Domaine Manciat-Poncet, Pouilly-Fuisse, “Les Crays” 2000 ($25) -- France; a Robert Kacher Selection; from the husband-wife team of Claude Manciat and Simone Poncet. I am told that this is one of the top small-producers in the area and is highly regarded and uses hand-picking in the vineyards. This is oak-aged, Chardonnay with a percentage of new barrels. I got a clean, slightly buttery taste with a good balance of fruit and acid with structure and a medium finish. There is only a hint of wood here. A great value for a small production Pouilly-Fuisse compared to the often more expensive producers, who make rivers of the stuff. Good Value for a Very Good Wine!
